Dare to Live Your Vision

In the summer of 2011 I realized what my true calling was. It came to me during mediation and I was shocked and confused that helping people was what I was here to do.  In the past I did not care much to go out of my way to help others but now it was something I was being attracted to do.

I ignored that calling for the next year and refused to accept it as my own.  I had been working hard on my modeling and acting career and I didn’t feel like I should back track and start from square one on something I never cared to do. I disregarded the voice inside my head (or should I say heart)  for over a year and in November 2012 I surrendered and decided to let my inner guide lead the way.

It has been four short months since I started on my path and I could not be any happier. Before I began I questioned how I would get started and how I would use my talents and skills to help empower others.  Did I even have talents and skill to help others? I was terrified of making a fool out of myself and I was even more terrified of putting my acting and modeling career on the back burner.

I told myself that I would start with a weekly blog where I would share with the world all of the valuable lessons that I was learning and go from there. On my first real post, I Bought Myself Flowers Today, I had a lot of hits.  People from all over the world wrote to me thanking me for the post, asking me for suggestions, and I saw my words being quoted on their on their own personal blogs.  I kept writing and more people expressed how helpful my words had been to them.  As I read the thank you notes, it became clear that I needed to do this.

Towards the end of December, I had a strong vision.  The vision was to reach out to as many people as I could and help transform their lives. I had seen how a few blog posts had been able to provide some kind of healing to a few and I figured that I could extend the healing to the masses.   I could tell you that nothing up to that point has ever lit me up the way that vision has.  This vision makes me feel alive and empowered.  I realized that not everything in life had to be about me.  I had to share my experiences to help better the lives of others.  I felt that it was my responsibility as a person to heal and serve others.

I have been operating from that vision ever since. It is like a candle that has the power to light up a whole room and the flame never dies out.  I constantly feel like I am being guided by a power higher than myself.  I intuitively know the next step in this journey, and I feel like there is nothing else in the world I rather be doing.  My imagination has amplified and my creativity has intensified.  I feel unstoppable.

When I feel unmotivated to go on, I tell myself that it is not about me.  I read the messages that I have received from others and realize the need for serving and I am able to align myself with my vision again.

I understand that I have to work hard to create positive change in myself in order to inspire others to create positive change in them.  There are times where I hardly recognize my life due to all the changes that have been happening.  I am happy to report that I have never been happier.

What does this blog post about the last four months of my life have to do with you? I wrote it to help illustrate the power of vision.  Having a vision for your life’s calling is magical. It empowers you to do things you never thought you were capable of.  Vision leads you to live the life you were meant to live. It brings meaning to everything you do and adds value to the lives of those around you.  All you have to do is dare to live in the light of your vision every day.

So tell me, do you have a vision? If so, have you dared to live up to it to its full potential? Let me know in the comments below! If you have not signed up for my mailing list, you can do so at the right side of the page.

Lots of Love,

    My vision has been less and less blurry thanks to YOU! YOUR posts have been motivating me to get rid of that glaze, and pushing me towards a better understanding of what potential is. It is still a work in progress, but you are definitely supporting and inspiring me to do things that I have to do in order “to get there”.
    So, please keep delighting us with your posts!! And I am sure I am speaking on behalf of all of your fans when I state that we will not say no to you posting daily! 😉 Thank you much Sol.
    Your fan,
